Marsden Group Divider Graphic

Our History:

Jonathan and Sarah Marsden founded Marsden in 2004. What started as a business of two in London and Toronto quickly grew into an internationally renowned business specialising in recruitment for law firms and legal teams, partner search, office launches and mergers.

Michelle Mills joined in the London office in 2009 and in the same year we launched in Sydney with Jonathan Walmsley leading the Australian business. Our Dubai office opened in 2016, when Aaron Faith joined us and we opened in Brisbane in 2018 with the appointment of Karen Waldock.

We now have specialist partner, lawyer and in-house teams as well as teams specialising in business development, marketing and communications, business support, temporary and permanent paralegals. Our business has grown to meet the expanding needs of law firms and legal teams, helping them grow and recruit across all skill-sets.

Our client list includes premier US and Magic Circle firms, top tier international and leading national firms, mid-tier and smaller boutique firms in all major markets. Our in-house teams work with a range of organisations including sophisticated global corporations, start-ups and government bodies.

Client or candidate, lawyer or provider, our international team of experts are able to assist.
